Subject: Straight Jackin'
Straight Jackin' (My Spot) is particularly great. Not all good music from archive.org ends up in heavy rotation on my iPod, but this does. It makes me smile as well as chill and get down with my bad self.

Subject: Good plunderphonics
This is good plunderphonics that lampoon an entity that deserves it. And it makes me laugh. Both qualities place the Hamburglars in good company with Negativland, Animals Within Animals and many more.

Subject: I wouldn't...
...wish this on my worst enemy. With the exception of "Quality, Service, Cleanliness and Value" this album just sogs like so many McDonald's fries. After hearing "QSCV" one is completely, suddenly, and utterly let down with the remainder of the album. If you're idea of music consists of enjoying soundbytes, repeated over and over, digitally fornicated while horribly misconducted rhythm pulsates to disharmoneous melodies - then go for it. Sorry guys, better luck next time.

Subject: Good fun inside-not very nutritious
This is well-done sound-manipulation nonsense,sor'ta like Van Halen without the Rock (or the Van Halen).If you can enjoy annoying humour this is for you.I think it's a hoot!The tracks appear to embody the very aspect of a happy meal;There's good fun inside,but it's not very nutritious.
